We walked up to Nestor's cave from Voidokilia Beach. This is a steep walk up the sand dune then a rocky path covered in bushes. The view when you get to the cave makes it all worthwhile but the cave itself is nothing special.

Cave is nothing special but views are spectacular! It's a good walk up from the beach - we did it barefoot but recommend trainers!

Beautiful cave with view over the beautiful lagoon in the bottom, nice walk to reach the cave too and really interesting if you believe to the legends. Do it

We accessed the cave from Voidokhilia Bay and it took us about 15 minutes to climb up. I guess you could run up and down but the path is very uneven and quite worn in places with only tree roots to stop you from sliding....More

Nestors cave is located in the rocks at the west end of Voidakilia beach. To reach the cave you climb the dunes, follow the obvious paths to the edge of the woods and then scramble through the rock woods up to the cave. The path...More

If you are in the area the walk up to the cave is worth doing. The actual cave is large but not particularly interesting. It is not one that needs a torch or exploring. It is well worth scrambling on up the path to the...More

The scaling requires a straight up sand dune, a meander through a gentle uphill meadow (full of bloom in May) and a crazy, low-bough forest trail. The cave is huge. It would be great to have a good lamb and to explore. Definitely cooler than...More

You should be aware that Nestor's Cave is located in an area that is prohibited because of falling rocks. But the drive to the end of Voikokilia is well worth the view and lovely beaches. At the end of the road, you can still walk...More

Sandy beach. Maybe the best in the wider area. A closed bay with opening toads the west. West winds affect it. Access though a narrow paved road. Carefully driving required.
